This is the question I ask every Thanksgiving, because squash (buttercup) is by far my favorite dish on the Thanksgiving table. Who’s bringing the carrots? – if they don’t show, I can manage. Who’s making the cranberry sauce? – not a necessity, if you ask me. Who’s bringing the turkey? – somehow it just shows up.

This year, it’s my responsibility to bring the squash, and I’m very excited about my new role as an official menu contributor. What I didn’t realize, though, is how much planning and coordination goes into prepping the food for the day. As my mom and I were discussing her oven and stove schedule for this morning – I’ll be in the way if I’m boiling the squash at the same time she’s roasting the root vegetables…oh, and then there’s the gravy and the pumpkin roll – I couldn’t help but think about how much easier it would be to keep track of all this with some sort of automated solution.

Then I remembered Workforce Home. While this solution is an amazing April Fool’s joke and not actually something we offer, don’t you think it would come in handy during the holiday season?

Happy Thanksgiving!
